Troma Entertainment, the longest running truly independent film studio in America, is proud to announce the Official Selection of the finale to Lloyd Kaufman’s two-part event film, Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Volume 2 at the 2017 Abertoir Horror Festival in Ceredigion, Wales. Volume 2, will be presented at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre on November 15th at 00:30 (12:30 am) – it was announced today by Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger.
“Toxie and I love the Abertoir Horror Festival! This TROMAZING festival has shown Troma nothing but love and we are honored to have Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Volume 2 presented on November 15th for a Midnight Movie Screening like no other!” stated Lloyd Kaufman.
Quentin Tarantino has been a fan and friend of Troma for years, and when he suggested to Lloyd Kaufman he should create an “Event Film,” Kaufman took note. “Michael Herz and I decided that to mark Troma’s 40th year we, too, would produce an ‘Event Film’ in two volumes just like Quentin did,” says Kaufman, “except slightly less lavish in the budget area.” Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1 & 2, directed by Lloyd Kaufman, is a hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi “Event Film” with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying, and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence.
The film, a revisiting of Troma’s 1986 Class of Nuke ‘Em High is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, and Carrie, but seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team. Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?
Up next from Troma is Lloyd Kaufman’s second installment of his two-part event film, Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High AKA Vol.2! 7 years in the making, Vol.2 is shaping up to be what Michael Herz has called “The best Troma Movie ever made!”
